The 7s tournament started today and it seemed to take up most of the BC School Sports staff resources, as of 10pm Thursday they haven’t updated the Day 2 XVs results. We can report that Shawnigan defeated Oak Bay 38-10 in AAA as that game was live streamed. We don’t have a result on the St. George’s v Carson Graham match.
